    At a Twitter live stream event held Monday, Parkland High School shooting survivor David Hogg said he will use his "white privilege" to make sure that other non-white victims of gun violence can be heard. Hogg lamented that if a similar event happened in a "lower socio-economic" place "like a black community" that the media would not give it the coverage like he and his fellow students have received "no matter how well those people spoke." "I think one of the greatest obstacles that we've faced though with this movement is the fact that there is a lot of racial...

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Weinstein Co. filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday with a buyout offer in hand from a private equity firm, the latest twist in its efforts to survive the sexual misconduct scandal that brought down co-founder Harvey Weinstein, shook Hollywood and triggered a movement that spread out to convulse other industries. The company also announced it was releasing any victims of or witnesses to Weinstein’s alleged misconduct from non-disclosure agreements preventing them from speaking out.
  • To My—and All Other—Students: A Lesson on the Modern Left

    As a teacher of public school (17 years), private school (7.5 years), and homeschool (11 years), I have a truly unique perspective on education. I’ve experienced k-12 education from just about every angle imaginable. ... In my quarter-century of teaching mathematics, there’s almost nothing in education that I can say all teachers, students, administrators, parents, and politicians agree upon, save this: we want our schools to be safe. One of the great tragedies of our time has been the wanton slaughter of helpless students, faculty, and staff in what could—and should—be one of the safest places in the world. Sadly,...

    Here are the best responses to Phillips' question, "Do you think that is committing cultural appropriation?": "Uh ... what?" "I guess it could be perceived as that." "I don't like when people do it to my culture, so, it's just kind of, like, how can I say I don’t like people who do it to my culture and then do it to someone else's?" "Uh ... hm. I honestly don't know." "I honestly have never even thought about it." "That's, like, a really touchy subject. I don't like, to, like, make an assumption about that when I'm not Irish." "Honestly,...

    Far-left late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, who is currently one of the most polarizing and divisive personalities in the country, admitted he has seen polls that show that his partisanship “has cost me commercially.” “According to polls I’ve seen, it has cost me commercially,” he told Oprah Winfrey in an interview for her O Magazine. “That’s not ideal, but I wouldn’t change anything I said.” “I know my job is, for the most part, to entertain people and make them laugh. That said, if I can be selfish every once in a while and talk about something serious that’s important to...

But the most terrifying words in every other language are, “We’re from the international community and we’re here to help.” In Haitian Creole that would be, "Nou soti nan kominote entènasyonal la e nou isit la pou ede." When an earthquake hit Haiti in ’10, everyone who was anyone in the international community quickly...
  • What Conservative Women Can Learn About Liberals From the Way They Treat Dana Loesch

    I have known Dana Loesch for a long time and I’ve been pleased to see her work her way up the food chain on the Right. She didn’t get to where she is because of a publicity stunt, because her whole gig is to offend people or because she mindlessly shills for the Republican Party. Instead, she’s someone with talent who was out there working her butt off for years.Is Dana Loesch a mainstream grassroots conservative? Absolutely. Is she someone who should be considered a feminist role model? You bet. Having met her and her husband on numerous occasions, I...

    In the United States, we’ve arrived at a pair of mutually exclusive convictions: that liberal, capitalist democracies are guaranteed by their nature to succeed and that in our Trumpist moment they seem to be failing in deeply unsettling ways. For liberals — and by this I mean inheritors of the long liberal tradition, not specifically those who might also be called progressives — efforts to square these two notions have typically combined expressions of high anxiety with reassurances that, if we only have the right attitude, everything will set itself aright. Hanging on and hoping for the best is certainly...

    The Nauseating, Obscene Hypocrisy of the Left Regarding Children By Bryan Fischer For the left, it’s all about the children. At least, that’s what they want you to think. But my assessment is that they simply use children to shamelessly advance their regressive agenda. They try to bludgeon us into silence by accusing us of hating children if we disagree with them. The reality, I suspect, is the other way round. I believe it is the left that does not truly care about children. Children are simply a manipulative tool they can use to bulldoze Americans into accepting their radical...

    The Los Angeles Police Department will deploy 500 officers to wrap the Dolby Theatre in multiple barriers of armed security for the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday night, an event at which several of Hollywood’s most celebrated stars will actively push for more gun control in America. “We have these concentric rings of security that start in the middle and radiate outward,” said LAPD Cmdr. Blake Chow, the man tasked with overseeing the massive operation. “We have a lot of officers in fixed posts and foot beats keeping an eye on the event.” Several celebrities plan to wear orange lapel...

    "Permit the children to come to me; do not hinder them; for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these." - Jesus in Mark 10:14 Throughout the world by God's design - and apart from mankind's fallen and sinful nature - there is nothing more universal than the love of parents for their children and the desire to protect them. It is incumbent upon parents and all citizens to do whatever they can to protect America’s children, teachers and staff in our schools. Tragically, the increase of heinous, immoral and murderous acts perpetrated on our young from the womb...

    (Conservative Tribune) – Political motivations often lead to bad policy — in the case of the Broward County School District, political motivations led to deadly policy. A look at the past seven years since Scott Israel became the head of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office reveal his agenda for self-advancement by making the school district in his jurisdiction appear safer. His actions proved to do the exact opposite. During his reelection campaign in 2016, Israel proudly toted his accomplishments of “sharply reduc(ing) violent crime and burglary rates,” as well as his “innovative initiatives” to keep students in school and out...

    The ownership of Dick’s Sporting Goods appears to be attempting to leverage the tragic shooting of school children into a marketing opportunity. The company has been exposed for its doublespeak on its decision to stop selling so-called “assault rifles.” Dicks Sporting Goods, Inc. [NYSE: DKS] announced on Wednesday its decision to not only stop selling AR-15 style rifles, but to jump in the middle of the gun control debate. The statement from the company announced it would stop selling “assault-style rifles, also referred to as modern sporting rifles,” in the wake of the tragic murder of 12 high school students...

"Dump Trump" is written in massive white letters on the roof of the building, along with a web address,, the personal blog of Perillo tours owner Stephen Perillo, son of the late Mr. Italy Mario Perillo.

    Do they really hate ordinary people that much? Yes, they do. For liberals, the distinction between the "dumb masses" and their enlightened selves renders life meaningful. Disdain for ordinary folks is not just an ancillary trait of liberalism. It is fundamental to the its nature. At its heart, liberalism is a gnostic religion, and the essence of that religion is the believer's faith that he possesses the means of changing the world for the better. The belief that the world must be changed requires there to be a mass of individuals whose lives are in need of change. Following this...

    In the aftermath of the Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, left wingers are pushing their well known gun-control agenda with a passion that would be admirable, provided it would serve a good cause. The Democrats and RINOs alike, together with their lapdog MSM argue that Nikolas de Jesus Cruz would have not killed seventeen of his former colleagues and teachers if AR-15 type semiautomatic rifles would have been banned. The argument is that criminal types looking to shoot up a public space, like a school, a cinema, a gay bar or whatever, would be deterred by gun control laws. Just...

    A top official at the Air Force Academy apologized for “microaggressions” that appeared in a school-wide email on haircut standards amid backlash to a reference to NBA great Michael Jordan. Cadets received the email on Wednesday from Master Sgt. Zachary Parish commenting on haircuts that did not meet the Academy’s standards and cast a “negative impression” on the “cadet population and armed service members at large.” Parish went on draw a comparison to Jordan. "He was never seen with a gaudy chain around his neck, his pants below his waistline, or with a backwards baseball hat on during public appearances,"...

    The liberal-leaning Church of Sweden is expected to lose over one million members in the next 10 years, insiders have said, and will soon have to start selling property it can no longer support. Börje Holgersson, chairman of the church council of Lima-Transtrand in Västerås, said in an article for SVT, the Swedish national public TV, that the parish "simply can't afford to make ends meet." A translation by Breitbart News on Wednesday noted that fears are that the Lutheran church, which has around six million baptized members in the country, will see a dramatic drop in membership over the...
